everything is far away and long ago
and i'm a ghost, i'm not where i belong
it's been a long, long time
since i felt strong

when i wake up, i go and make my face again
so, no one i know will ever know how i really feel
it's been a long, long time
since i felt real

and all this time outside the brutal battle's been raging
o, the ignorance and the senselessness of it all
i feel shell-shocked and shattered
bruised, beaten, battered
down deep inside my soul
o, the world seems so unsafe for such a fragile thing

everything is far away...
